Exploring The Pacific Northwest: The National Parks

Sampling Multnomah Falls, Crater Lake, Olympic National Park and all the Roads in Between

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography - Out West

So, while I was preparing yesterday’s post, I realized that I had never published part two of our adventure to the Pacific Northwest way back in early October.  So, without any further delay, here’s our photos from this great adventure.  Over the course of a few days, we visited Multnomah Falls, spent a day on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, did a drive-by of Mount Rainier, and took a day trip along the volcanic range, stopping along the slopes of Mt. Hood, and finally spending the afternoon at Crater Lake.  It was a busy couple of days, but well worth the 1,200 plus miles and 30+ hours on the road.   There were all sorts of wonders to see – from the staggering heights and immersive (wet) experience at Multnomah falls, to the expansive grandeur of Crater Lake.  Needless to day, the Pacific Northwest has many jewels in the tapestry of her landscape, and I;m thankful I was able to sample just a few!

As a note, if you plan to head up to Olympic National Park from Portland, you might not want to stop every 10 miles to take photos.  After driving for about 8 hours on the very scenic Rt. 101, I found myself at the entrance to Olympic National Park shortly after they had closed.  So, I missed out on seeing some of the beautiful scenes in the park, not to mention going another 100 miles to the Pacific, which I had hoped to do.  But, with the daylight coming to an end, a long drive back to Portland ahead, and a busy day of shooting for our client on the following morning, it was time to hit the road.  But, as a plus, as I was driving south, just after sunset, I was treated to an stunning view of Mount Rainier rising over the gentle rolling hills of Washington.  It was pretty amazing.  And then there was crater lake – a spectacular volcanic formation that is hard to wrap your mind around.  Sitting perched above the lake, it seems only a mile or two across, but in reality it’s nearly six miles wide and has an average depth of over 1,000 feet!  It was truly a site to behold!

All in all, it was an amazing trip – filled with the natural jewels of the Pacific Northwest – an hors d’oeuvre that left me longing for another trip to the land of fog and fire.  As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – we have sized the photos to 1080P HD wallpaper, perfect for your desktop, laptop, tablet or TV – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

Exploring The Pacific Northwest: Portland, OR

New Horizons and Some Spectacular Mornings in Portland

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography - Out West

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of heading out to the Pacific Northwest for the first time – traveling to Portland, OR to shoot for two of our regular clients.  It was a wonderful, albeit quick trip to the Left Coast.  Today is our first of two posts from the trip – this time focusing on the city of Portland and a pair of rather stunning sunrises with a not too shabby sunset on the side.  I arrived in Portland to the stereotypical rainy and overcast weather of the region, but by the following morning, the fog had begun to lift, and I set out in the pre-dawn light to find a few spots I had researched the night before.  As it turned out, the tendrils of fog still clung to the hills west of the city, so I headed back down to my hotel in downtown Portland.  But on my way down, the early morning sun slipped through the sliver of land and clouds to create a rather spectacular show along the riverfront that I couldn’t pass up.  Below is one of my favorite shots.

Later on in our trip, after speaking to a few locals who suggested a trip to Pittock Mansion, I headed up to the turn-of-the-century estate for an evening shoot of the quintessential Portland skyline and Mt Hood, 50 miles to the east.  The view was spectacular, and as you would expect, it drew a large contingent of shutterbugs, from couples with their phones, to professional photographers and even a chap shooting IR time-lapse video!  You can see some of our evening shots in the gallery below.  But perhaps my favorite Portland shots from the trip (like the one at the top of this post) were taken the following morning.  There is this great site, SunCalc, that allows you to determine where and when the sun will rise and set each day – and its perfect for lining up shots.  This time, we really lucked out, with the sun rising right over Mt Hood.  Add to that the morning’s bands of cirrus clouds, and it made for an absolutely epic sunrise!

The Great Eastern Adventure – New Year’s Fowl Sunrise

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Happy New Year!  We thought we would kick things off with a little play on words – Thankfully the sunrise on the first day of 2015 was actually rather spectacular as it rose over Whaleback Light off the coast of New Castle, NH (below).  The fowl we referred to is this snowy owl (above), who I’ve been tracking for a few days, trying to get the perfect shot.  Coastal New England is not the normal habitat for these arctic birds, but occasionally, what’s called an irruption occurs, where birds go far beyond their normal habitat in search of ample food supplies.  With snowy owls, its not uncommon for the birds to then return to the destination of their irruption year after year, as is the case with this pair who first arrived about this time last year.

And just like that we’re half way through 2014.  Can you believe it?  In Florida things are heating up and I’ve found myself longing for that winter weather again.  But you can’t tell that from our July HD wallpaper.  As with previous months, these images are formatted for HD 16×9 screens and make great wallpaper for your computer, tablet or TV.  This month we’ve got some bright and sunny shots from all over the eastern seaboard, from Maine to Florida – and as it is July, I’ve included one of my favorite 4th of July shots from Portsmouth, NH. And lastly, our calendar post wouldn’t be complete without an image from the Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance – this month is a quite unique and surprisingly ‘un-Fordlike’ Ford – it’s Edsel Ford’s Restored 1934 Model 40 Special from the 2012 Concours.  If you’re looking for more automotive-themed desktop wallpaper, be sure to check out our Automotive section!

2014 06 June Wallpaper - Big City Sunrise Manchester Grand Hyatt

Yup.  It’s official.  June is, believe it or not, just around the corner.  And to prove it, we’ve uploaded our June fine art wallpaper just for you!   As with previous months, these images are formatted for HD 16×9 screens ans make great wallpaper for your computer, tablet or TV.  This month it seems the sun has played a major role in the photos – from Sunrise over the Atlantic (in the distance) in Jacksonville, FL to Sunset over the Pacific in Carlsbad, CA (Both were taken on the same day in case you were wondering)!  This month the photos hail from Florida, California, Georgia and Maine.  As tradition dictates, I also share one of our favorite images from a past Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance – this month is a very special Shelby creation, the 1962 Shelby Dragonsnake – a lightning-fast drag racing machine that also honeymooned in the movies (such as Viva Las Vegas – starring the one and only Elvis).  If you’re looking for more automotive-themed desktop wallpaper, be sure to check out our Automotive section!
